Two and a half weeks after he was fired as head coach of the Cardinals, Ken Whisenhunt has found a new job.
Whisenhunt is the new offensive coordinator of the Chargers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported and PFT has confirmed.
In San Diego, Whisenhunt will work for new head coach Mike McCoy, formerly the offensive coordinator of the Broncos. And Whisenhunt will not have to deal with the frequent quarterback controversies that bubbled up for him in Arizona: In San Diego, everyone knows Philip Rivers is the starter.
This will be Whisenhunt’s second stint as an NFL offensive coordinator, having previously coordinated the Steelers’ offense from 2004 to 2006. He has also been an assistant with the Jets, Browns and Ravens.
